Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on genealogy for 30 years and have been taking pictures for 60. Taking pictures as I walk though cemeteries is a natural extension. We are retired and do a lot of traveling. When possible I pick small local cemeteries to photo inventory. I only hope my efforts are a help to someone.

Take a look and see how I tried to link to both the birth parents and adoptive parents. If it looks ok, I would be more than happy to transfer to you if you wish. If not, please let me know if you have any other additions or corrections. The whole story sounds very familiar. My mothers mother died when she was 6wks old from TB as well and she was adopted.

RE: Permission
I'm hesitant, as I hate the way Ancestry deal with Find-A-Grave. As long as you give me credit go ahead.

RE: Permission
Which ones? Is your tree private?

Howard Rush is in my family tree... just thought you might want to add his middle name, Franklin. Not necessary, but may help someone to solidify a connection.

Thank you for all your work!! I appreciate it!

Bethel and Yale
Hi Ernie,

Thanks for getting back to me. Looks like I have some cleaning up to do. Are there lists on the internet of both cemeteries of who is buried where?

Where is the Bethel Cemetery? I think I remember Bethel Church as being just west of the Mound. I don't remember there a Cemetery there? But, I haven't lived in Crawford County in over 50 years so what do know? Is this cemetery there?

I have Cohoon, Osborn's and I can't remember who all in Yale. Please tell me if I am wrong, but what I know as the Yale Cemetery is just on the west edge of town,(past where Merrick Studio was when I was a kid), on the right on the road. Right?
